Who the hell am I? Good question. Well, for starters, I work for the Smithsonian, and I live in Manhattan. I just came back here after four years in Washington, DC and I couldn't be happier. I made tons of really great friends in DC but it is missing the vitality of NYC. And if you live in DC you have to be somewhat interested in politics, and I definitely am not.

I don't really dig sports either – unless it means beer in the bleachers at a ball game. But books and music – that's me. I read a lot, mostly nonfiction, but I'm always up for a good novel if it comes highly recommended. And I'm constantly floored by the great music out there. When all of the Limp Bizkits and Stainds and all that other crap became "rock & roll" I started looking elsewhere and found incredible stuff: the Crystal Method, Spiritualized, this great band called Jonesamatic, and tons of other groups and players who are doing tons of new and exciting things.

I'm a drummer and I've been lucky enough to play and record with some pretty legendary people. Right now me and an old friend (who happens to be a great bass player) are figuring out how to use this recording software we scored, and then we're going into the studio and just hitting 'record.' Once we get some bass & drums down, we're going to call all of our friends and ask them to add in their guitar playing, singing, piano playing or whatever. We figure the best thing we have going for us is we have absolutely no idea what we're doing. It should be a blast.
